Breeding behavior or just plain territorial?

So I've observed my new Oranda for the last few days in the main tank, and I sometimes see him chasing my other fish around the tank. The other fish that were chased were smaller than him, only about 2.5 inches head to tail, while [he]'s about 2.5 inches head to body. I have another oranda in the tank that's similar size as him, but he doesn't chase the fish around. Instead, they swim in circle around each other, similarly to how dogs circle around sniffing other's butt. I don't know if this is a breeding thing, or it's just his pushy personality.
